Debunking the Myths about Human Growth Hormones

The internet is rife with dubious accounts of the positive and ill effects of human growth hormones.

Some of them claim to provide miracle results while others speak of a risk of cancer and diabetes without providing any plausible results at all. With such opposing opinions about them, is it any wonder that so many people are skeptical of their safety and effectiveness.

​Well, perhaps it is time to clear the air. Let’s come clean and set the record straight.

Human growth hormones are not a god-sent miracle that will completely change your life within minutes, and neither are they riddled with the risks and dangers that so many people associate with them.

Debunking the Myths about Human Growth Hormones

Here are a few of the most common and unfair myths surrounding HGH, regarding their safety, benefits, legality and use.

Because when deciding whether or not to use them, it is far better to be informed that slathered with baseless opinions and false facts.

Myth One - HGH releasers are basically steroids 

Steroids are all too easily seen as an ugly word, and as soon as a clinically tested injectable releaser enter the market, it is only natural that many misinformed people would assume that there is little difference between it and steroids; an unfair fallacy if I’ve ever heard one.

Steroids, on the other hand, travel through the bloodstream and attach themselves to muscles to stimulate a process of protein synthesis which stimulates cell growth, resulting in muscle growth.

In comparison, HGH releasers simply stimulate the production of HGH, which in the right doses, provide a number of benefits to the human body.

Myth two: HGH is not FDA approved

When it comes to supplements and stimulators, it is wise to do your homework with regards to its legality, especially if you are a competitive athlete or are particular sensitive to side-effects.

Unfortunately, because of their common yet unfair association with steroids, HGH releasers are often assumed to be unapproved by the FDA. An assumption which is far from the truth.

Releasers are in fact, as legal as things get. In more concentrated doses, releasers can only be prescribed by a licensed physician, which is just as well because it reacts to everyone a little differently, and requires carefully prescribed doses to be used effectively and safely.

According to the Health and Education Act of 1994, under the correct advice, there is nothing wrong with benefiting from the use of HGH releasers. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself.

Myth three: HGH will bulk you out

Not necessarily, that is to say, not unless you work at it.

Bodybuilders might find that HGH releasers help them bulk out, but that is only because it allows for an increase in amino acid uptake due to the liver secreting more igf-1, that in return lets the body synthesize protein into muscle much more easily.

However, releasers are more effective at burning body fat to increase lean muscle mass. So, the effect that it will have on your body-shape, depends largely on your own activities and dietary habits.

Myth four: Results are nearly instant

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned in life, it’s that you should never trust a quick-fix. You might find some releasers out there that promise results within a matter of days, which is simply not (healthily) possible.

The average time it will take for you to notice a real difference when using HGH releasers, is about three months.

Your body takes time to get used to a course of releasers, so you shouldn’t be expecting any noticeable differences immediately.

When prescribed to children that are struggling through a stunted stage of growth, HGH releaser courses typically last around a year.

There might be products out there that work more quickly, however they are probably not legit.

Myth five: We simply don’t know enough about HGH treatments

You could say that this is true, if you consider that we can never know enough about anything. But relatively to the amount of studies done on HGH treatments, we know a lot.

Studies date back to as long ago as 1974 and stretch forward to today with regards to their benefits to the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, promoting growth in children, preventing dementia and improving concentration to name a few.​

Myth six: There are no risks when using HGH

We may know enough about HGH releasers to use them safely, however that does not mean that they don’t come with their risks.

In fact, I would go so far as to say that anyone who tells you that there is nothing to worry about, should have their knowledge or integrity checked.

Firstly, doses should be very carefully measured and stuck to, which is why you should always consult with your physician before using them.​

​Secondly, while most people partaking in HGH treatments report no ill side-effects, incorrect doses can lead to an access of HGH, which has been known to result in swelling joints, diabetes, and an increased aggression in certain types of cancers.

Myth seven: You need to be athletic to benefit from HGH

While the benefits of HGH releasers for those who are physically active are apparent, one doesn’t need to have a better body in mind as a goal to benefit from best hgh supplement.

Human growth hormone therapy has gotten a bad rap over the years, and most of it has come either from the small tales of abuse that by no means make up the majority of cases or a simple lack of knowledge and understanding of what HGH releasers are.

In fact, studies on the benefits of HGH treatments have reported an increase in sexual functions, bone density, cell regeneration and immune strength, brain functions as well as cardiovascular systems.

So as it is with any substance, consult a physician before taking them, and use them wisely.
